  1. Best answer
    A 280X or a 290.
  2. Might be worth spending a little extra and getting the cheapest GTX 970 you can find.
  3. I would really recommend a 970 as I have an MSI GTX 970 for my first gaming build and it is superb! If you literally can't go any higher I would definitely recommend the R9 290 on the AMD side or the GTX 770 on the NVIDIA side. But my recommendation is go for the R9 290 if you CAN'T go above budget but if you can adjust your build or whatever go for the GTX 970!

    Good luck! :)
  4. Whats the rest of the specs?

  6. R9 290. I got mine last Friday for $239.99 and its meeting my expectations pretty well for the price (previous card was an HD 7950). XFX Double Dissipation - runs very cool and quiet (65C tops while gaming - 70C in Heaven).

    That's cooler than my MSI 970 :'(

    I can't wait till I get my new fan, I really hope it fixes my bad temps :D
  8. See it, i would stretch your budget a bit more and go for cheap gtx 970 like the Galax ones
